Our theme this year is “Christmas TV Adverts”

Every year advertisers put a huge effort into getting their message across. Their hope is that through connecting with the adverts, people will be moved to buy more. For example, John Lewis sold out of their Night Sky Projector in the days after their Mog advert was aired.

In our services throughout Advent and Christmas, we are going to show how the advertising message does not always reflect the true meaning of Christmas.  Each week we will take a different advert and explore how we can use them to talk about the Christmas message.
